Priorities change as one gets older.

I'm just giddy that . . . once again, I woke up.


Cheated Death once again! Haha!

Nothing better than waking up alive mate...

Kind of gives you a warm fuzzy feeling...

Don't knock waking up dead until you've tried it.

It's always such bull when people say this

Have you ever thought that first world people can have really heavy problems? Maybe szino9 has things going on none of us can understand. I'm not saying it's so extreme, but I know a clinical director who works full time and makes a solid 80k a year who looks rough some days. Now I could grunt out a "smile" or I could mind my own business and leave other people alone.

The benefit of leaving her alone is that now I won't make her feel worse...seeing as she was a sexual assault victim.

She can walk....
She has a job...a really good job
She has lovely children
a even has a horse for goodness sake...I have one too....they are very much first world successes and allowances. Sure I earned it, but still first world.

But the whole first world BS is so instant excuse to ignore everything that could be going on in an ugly, but still first world or in people's personal lives all to play the pain Olympics. Because a child in Ghana is starving and near death or because the kid in Nepal I saw who had legitimate leprosy....I can't allow myself pain.

Maybe she was trying to startle a smile out of you?

I had a chemstry teacher who used to bark quite a bit but it was never in a mean way. He jsut did it because it was his favorite way of provoking a sudden and honest response out of high school students who were sometimes not the most attentive of students.

It's always hard to react to someone forcing reactions on you. Basically she shocked you in a dark mood to appear happy. That's pretty hard to react positively to.

I've worked around a number of odd people in my days and nobody has yelled at me to smile yet, thnx for sharing

I have always added 2 other words to this and it usually gets positive reactions.

Smile and nod.

It addresses so many issues that I come into contact with daily.
